    dotsSilent Icedots

    Remember nights of velvet wine,
    When love was our unwhispered lullaby?
    It's potency was so much greater then.

    It had the strength to give us wings,
    To carry us beyond the stars,

    And now, it's barely strong enough to keep conversation.

    Don't misunderstand, we've had our silences before.

    But they were different;
    They sang of quiet devotion, and unprofessed emotion.
    Before, the silence shared was comforting and warm.

    Now, it is hollow--like an ache.

    So cold, that if I spoke, my words would freeze.
    My fingers are too numb to feel your hand.
    This silent ice crept into our life, and my world became so cold.

    I still shiver when you hold me in your arms.

      Hey Lady,

    I just saw that you were the longest lived member on ES I had ever seen, so I stopped by to read some of your stuff.

    It was nice the way the love changed with time, and the 'Silent Ice' line was nice. It's kind of like those slow motion scenes of ice crystals spreading across a watery surface.

    I think you might improve the flow by adding a word to the first line and taking one or two out of the second.

    'Remember nights of velvet wine,
    When love was our unwhispered lullaby?'

    (Remember the nights of velvet wine,
    our love an unwhispered lullaby?)

    Just my thoughts.


    p.s. There's a poem on my page that's just for you. It's called... 'A Poem'

      very well spoken. i like the careful wording and the clarity. although you had many oppurtunities to go scampering off into the metaphors, you held your tongue and let the universality of the images take the reader to his own conclusion. i myself often find myself hijacking my readers and forcing them to come along to the dungeons i have constructed. your poem is flawless and delicate.

      This is beautiful. You did very well getting both the story and the emotion through to the reader. This is well structured as well; the stanzas change where the statement changes. It doesn't look like you felt the need to stick with three lines per stanza or whatever- am I making sense? I sure hope I am. I can almost relate, but not so much... No, not making any sense...

    Anyway, this is very good.

      WOW! YIKES!
    this is incredible!
    the way your voice comes through in the piece... evidently cold towards he who once was your warmth in life.
    the silence and the difference between this kind and the silent adoration kind is brilliantly well expressed and i know exactly what you mean.

    really you have used quite few words to portray a very huge chunk of life and experience... the nature of the write is cold and standoff ish and yet there are hints of warmth in the memories revealed...

    seriously i am impressed by this write immensly. i am off to bed now but when i get a chance i am back on your page to check the rest of your stuff out... i remember reading your stuff ages ago and liked it so im gonna be back right soon... ciao for now

      This is on impressive poem. I should have looked you up sooner. It is a very original style you used which is dangerous, but you pulled it off with out a problem. I will tell you my favorite part is the last line it came so strong it was a show stopper. The mark of greatness is when the reader reads the last word and goes wow. I if you look at your other comments, someone has beat me to it.

      This hit home! (see "Superrnova") You so authentically discribe the subtle and no so subtle changes in a relationship where the flame has died leaving only icy distance - a chasm that cannot crossed! Lovely! thank you!

      I get where you're coming from in the poem. I also like how you were able to make the title fit into the poem. The poem overall was very creative although I feel the ending wasn't complete. The poem definately inspired me though! Keep up the good work!
